3 years of stability, future looks bright 25.5.2017
The multiple achievements of the Narendra Modi government are apparent from the performance of the economy over the past three years. When it came to power in May 2014, economic growth was decelerating and the investment momentum had stagnated. Since then, the rate of growth has accelerated with GDP growing at 7.2 per cent, 7.9 per cent and 7.1 per cent in the last three years. Consumer price inflation, which was running at double digits through most of 2012-13 and 2013-14, has moderated significantly and is currently down to just under 3.0 per cent. This combination of good growth and low inflation has resulted in a period of macro-economic stability. The reduction in both the fiscal and current account deficits have also contributed to stability. Our current account deficit had increased to an alarming level of 4.8 per cent of GDP in 2012-13, indicating poor performance of exports relative to imports. This is set to decline to less than 1.0 per cent in 2016-17. Similarly, the fiscal deficit, which had ...

Residents of trust colony look for better amenities 25.5.2017 The Tribune
Our Correspondent Ludhiana, May 24 Lambasting the apathetic attitude of the officials of Ludhiana Improvement trust (LIT) towards their plight, the residents of 256 acre Maharishi Valmiki Nagar colony have demanded for better civic amenities and urban infrastructure which were promised to them at the time of development of the colony. They further rued that repeated complaints made to the LIT authorities on various civic issues or problems being faced by the residents evoke no response. In a separate memoranda submitted to the LIT Administrator and the Punjab Minister for Local Bodies Navjot Singh Sidhu, the Rishi Nagar (F-Block) Welfare Association president, Satish Thaman, had pointed out that since mid-March, the residents’ body had submitted 17 separate representations to the LIT authorities seeking improvement in delivery of civic amenities without getting reply to even a single of them. Similarly, he referred to at least five DO letters sent by Directorate of Local Government, the Chief Minister’s ...

Tree lovers turn vacant plot into mini forest in Krishnarajapuram 22.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Once a vacant plot, this unused railway property is now a full-fledged mini forest, attracting a variety of birds and butterflies. All it took was eight months for members of 'SayTrees' to turn this no-mans land in Krishnarajapuram into a beautiful, lungspace. A pilot project of city-based SayTrees, an organisation comprising like-minded people, the initiative started in September 2016 with the planting of around 2,000 saplings on the plot measuring 600 sq metres. The land, located near the diesel locomotive shed close to the ITI campus in Krishnarajapuram, belongs to Indian Railways. "The objective of our project was to create an urban mini forest in Bengaluru to increase green cover. On September 24, 2016 we planted saplings of more than 40 tree species like neem, jamun, mango, banyan and others. The saplings have grown upto 10 feet now. In the next two years, we aim to make this forest more dense. We have named this forest Miyawaki," said head of partnerships and projects, SayTrees, Durgesh ...

Bad roads in ‘not-so-smart city’ 22.5.2017 The Tribune
Amidst hullabaloo of the ‘smart city project’ for Ludhiana, even the existing urban infrastructure is not being properly maintained. About city roads, the less said the better. Potholes dot almost all main roads. One rarely comes across a properly carpeted road in commercial hubs or residential areas. Nearly, all major roads lie in a state of neglect. Even patch work has not been done on many main and feeder roads. There have been numerous complaints related to the newly carpeted roads not retaining their top coat for too long. It seems that the quality of workmanship does not seem to be among the priorities of the Municipal Corporation (MC). There is no doubt that scarce financial resources of the civic body are being squandered away with the active connivance of some officials and contractors while the top brass of the MC either deliberately, or otherwise, prefers to look the other way. Movie buffs already Ludhiana seems to the favourite destination of Bollywood. From Aamir Khan to Salman Khan and now, ...

A hasty recarpeting that endangers road safety 20.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Unscientific road re-relaying methods are becoming a big cause of worry for most Bengalureans. Asphalting roads without removing the existing layer has increased road levels across the city, pushing houses and shops down below. The drawbacks are there for all to see. For instance, the residents of Halasuru believe that all their problems linked to waterlogging and flooding are because of the low elevation of houses compared to the roads. R Harish Kumar owns a house in Halasuru, an area through which a huge open sewer passes. Drawing attention to the areas problems, he says the high elevation of roads determines which direction the water flows in. Inconvenience Heres his complaint: "Those who build roads should understand this. This is very inconvenient for houses that are at a low elevation. Water just flows in. It gets even worse when the water gets mixed with the waste water from the broken sewage system." For Yedu Rajeev, a biker, the issue is one of ease of transportation. "I am a native of Kerala. I ...
